Hello Class of 1994!  I finally have some news to report, other than mine. Jessica Olin now lives in Rochester, NY, and works as the director of library services for a school in the SUNY system – Genesee Community College.  She joined GCC as the new Director of Library Services in July of 2017. Jessica previously served as the Director of the Robert H. Parker Library at Wesley College, Dover, DE. She has also served as Information Literacy Librarian at Hiram College, Hiram, OH, as well as Adjunct Librarian, Grants Specialist, and Research Services Librarian at Landmark College, Putney, VT.  After Hood, Jessica went on to receive Her M.A.Ed., Touro University International, Cypress, CA and MLIS, Simmons College, Boston, MA. Her professional and research interests include building community at academic libraries, the role of gender in academia, and bridging the gap between library science graduate programs and professional practice. In her spare time, she likes to cross-stitch, watch nerdy television shows like Doctor Who, and spend a lot of time in thrift stores. Congratulations on a job well done! I have also heard about a lot of other wonderful events happening in your lives, but unless you give me the okay I cannot report it. I love seeing your posts on Facebook and so thankful that I keep in touch with so many. Please reach out with a quick email. I would love to hear from you! As for me, Sanya Cleary Wolstenholme, and my own family, Mackenzie is loving life as a freshman at York College of Pennsylvania. Rich and I still aren’t sure how this happened-we must have blinked.  Tori is doing well as a sophomore and Student Council Class President. Rich and I will celebrate 22 years of marriage this November and love our life- the good, the bad, the happy, and the sad. I am still teaching Pre-K children and loving every minute of it! I hope to hear from you soon! Enjoy the season, stay warm, and choose happy! Shannon Gierczak Marriott writes “I am going into my 20th year as a physician assistant after passing my recertification exam for the 4th time last December.  I have been working in the pharmaceutical industry as a Principal Investigator at PAREXEL for the past 10 years. I primarily conduct Phase 1 and Phase 2 clinical trials to work on getting drugs FDA approved.  In addition, I have recently started a bus trip charter company for all New York City trips.  My company is Drama For Your Mama NYC Bus Tours and can be found on Facebook. I do trips to Broadway shows, 9-11 Museum, Shopping Extravaganzas, Sightseeing tours and more. I also do customized tours for groups, fundraisers, girls day out, senior centers and more! I have three children, 3 cats and Matt, my husband of 17 years. Mason is 5 and recently starting Kindergarten. Kaitlyn is 14 and attends Ridge Ruxton School in Towson, MD. Kaitlyn is our angel born with Chromosome 18 Deletion Syndrome and also has autism.  She is our challenging child, but we would not have it any other way.  Brooke is our 10 year old professional actress.  She has been doing theater since age 3 but recently moved into film, TV and commercials. She has filmed on House of Cards, HBO Crashing and Dangerous Book for Boys directed by Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad among others. Her dream is to be cast in a Disney show or a major motion picture. Her dream show to work on is Law and Order.  She will be auditioning for NYC agents this Fall.  Recently, during an audition in Frederick, we had the chance to drive through the Hood Campus to show my family where I went to school and we even had the opportunity to walk through Smith dorm!!
